Now, according to many market players, hedge funds are viewed as useless, outdated financial vehicles of an era lost to time. Although there are In excess of 8,000 hedge funds with their doors open currently, this site focuses on the aristocrats of this club, around 525 funds. Analysts calculate that this group has its hands on the majority of the smart money’s total capital, and by tracking their highest quality stock picks, we’ve revealed a few investment strategies that have historically beaten the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points annually for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have beaten the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find a sample of our picks).

Just as key, bullish insider trading sentiment is another way to analyze the financial markets. There are plenty of motivations for a bullish insider to sell shares of his or her company, but just one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Various empirical studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this strategy if “monkeys” understand what to do (learn more here).

Dmitry Balyasny’s fund, Balyasny Asset Management, also said goodbye to its stock, about $6.7 million worth.
